Garlic Scape Stock

What an interesting vegetable the garlic scape is. These green curly snake like rods are wonderfully fragrant and have a great garlic flavor. Unfortunately, BP II is not a huge fan of garlic. I on the other hand am a garlic lover and fully practice my love.

Recently, BP II and I went to the beach and I didn’t have time to use up all my garlic scapes. However, my CSA coordinator turned me to on a Mark Bittman recipe for garlic scape stock. I was intrigued. I go thought so much stock, from risottos to potatoes I use it in almost everything, that I figured to give it a go (despite BP II’s protests, what do boys know anyway?) The garlic aroma filled my apartment and I can’t wait to try it in my next risotto.
